Lots 153 to 156 were made by John Harwood who designed the original BOY shop in King’s Road - the cult fashion label and Mecca of Punk. He has since collaborated with David Gill, Issey Miyake, Charles Saatchi, Solange Azagury, Partridge, Richard Rogers and Damien Hirst. He has also worked extensively for the King of Jordan, the King of Morocco and the Sultan of Oman.
The design is based on the set of chairs by the iconic French designer Claude Lalanne, originally commissioned by the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation for the courtyard of the de Witt Wallace decorative Arts Museum in Virginia.
Artist's Resale Rights apply to this lot.
Both chairs in need of cleaning. Bottom bowed stretcher under seat with a break and in need of rebraising. Some other very small scratches but otherwise good condition.
Please note that each of these chairs is heavy and need more than one person to move them around.
